Lately I’ve been having dreams of explosions. Well, sort of. I’ve been woken up probably a dozen times over the last week or so hearing explosions and feeling the house shake. Not “near”, “in-my-yard” type explosions, but more like a BIG explosion about a ¼ mile away. When I wake up, I look around, my wife and kids haven’t woken up, the dog isn’t barking, nothing is shaking. I then wonder if it was a dream and go back to sleep. What makes me think it’s not a dream is that sometimes while I’m dreaming I get woken up by the explosion (and there's not an explosion in context with the dream.
Now here’s where it gets a little weirder. The other day I go outside to feed the chickens and hear a BIG explosion off in the distance (didn’t feel it, just heard it). I go inside and ask everyone what they thought it was. No one heard it but me. I watched the news that night to see if something in town blew up. Nothing.
We live in the mountains and many times if someone is building a home (or strip mall) and they have to level the ground, explosives are required. So it makes sense that there might be explosions around here. But in the middle of the night? With no signs of construction in my area?
Any ideas as to what this could be?
